Mamata Banerjee has single handedly dissolved 34 years of communist rule in the Hoogly.
More power to her hands…God save the people of Bengal from the godless communists and give the scions of Rammohan Roy, Ramakrishna and Vivekananda a great future.
May empty tradeunionism be thrown off and Bengalis get to work to create a new Bengal. As a person born in their greatest city, I am deeply interested in their welfare.
But what Gautam Dev, a CPM spokesman said to Times Now’s Arnab Goswami is getting me worried.
There should be not one more Shingur or Nandigram in Bengal…whether we are in position or opposition we won’t allow that, he was declaring repeatedly like an oracle.
Arnab was shocked…but desisted from asking the question : Are you threatening Mamata with strikes and opposition to development plans? The CPM’s bitterness at being decimated by a single woman was coming out as an open threat.
I fear that the well entrenched communists will keep on creating problems of governance for Mamata. They will seek to make Bengal her Waterloo. But they will only be making life difficult for Bengalis in general.
I therefore pray to God that he should make West Bengal a great centre of dynamic development. I want to see my city of Kolkota become a world city in every way. May Bengal which paved the way for Indian renaissance a hundred years ago come to life again.
